It’s tough to believe that August has arrived and summer will soon be winding down.  But this message is just for you, ACCOUNTING MAJORS!  Don’t despair because it’s almost time to head back to school.  August is a great time to apply for Freed Maxick & Battaglia’s Summer 2012 internship program: The MAX (Mentored Accounting Experience) Program!

And now the application and program brochure have been posted on our website.  All applications are due September 30, 2011.

Freed’s internships provide real public accounting experience.  You’ll work on actual engagements with our staff, managers and directors.  Each summer, a select group of students is chosen to participate and the competition can be tough!  We’re looking for students who can commit to a six-week program which will run from the middle of June to the end of July 2012.  The internship is full-time and takes place in our Buffalo and Batavia offices.

Ideal candidates for the program have achieved a B or higher in Accounting Principles I and II, and have a GPA of 3.4 or above.  Freed Maxick interns are motivated to succeed and have decided to pursue a career in public accounting.  They have a “spark” which sets them apart from others, great communication skills, a willingness to learn, and demonstrated participation in meaningful activities outside of the classroom.

If it sounds like we’re describing you, consider applying for the MAX Program.  And don’t delay – it’s already August!
